Nasty Women New Haven Exhibition

Scroll I installed outside for the Nasty Women Show, New Haven

In honor of International Women's Day and the opening for the Nasty Women Show, I installed a 30-ft. painting, Scroll I, on the facade of the Institute Library. Over the past few weeks, this painting on paper has experienced rain, snow, and significant wind, but I'm happy to report that the painting is still standing with little damage. The paper has started to buckle in places, but overall, the vibrant colors have barely faded or bled. 

Nasty Women Exhibition

Organized by Sarah Fritchey, Valerie Garlick, and Lucy McClure, the Nasty Women Show at the Institute Library is part of a movement of similar exhibitions throughout the country, following the lead of the first show at the Knockdown Center in Queens in January. 

One of the curators for the Nasty Women Show asked participants what it means to be nasty. I think that being vulnerable to the elements is one way to show perseverance. 

 The Institute Library is located at 847 Chapel Street in downtown New Haven. The exhibition continues through April 9, 2017.
